Reviews & an Update

Hello Everyone, 

How was your weekend? Mine was uneventful, which is EXCELLENT :) I got some reading done, so I thought that I should let you guys in on the secrets :) ok, they aren’t secrets, but how about my reviews! So, here ya go…. 

A Demon Made Me Do It

As always I need to thank the R2R guys and the author for giving me a copy of this book to read for review! There are some days when I’m just so happy to be part of this group, for without them I would have never found some of the best books! Like this one!! So, here’s all the links I think you should check out including my 5 PAWs review :) (yeah, so in a description, some people give roses (KAY) and some people give bats, and wings, and hearts, and stars,  so I’ve decided to draw a paw (via paint program on my computer) and use this as my rating :) see the paws ->)

Hello Everyone!! I know it has been a while since I’ve posted anything, but goodness, has life been crazy! For all those who inquired, my surgery went great, and I am healing very well! Still on restricted activity, but today I started driving again (it was nice having a chauffer for almost 3 weeks)! umf, however, it sucks driving a lil box car around, since my car is still being fixed from my wreck (which happened on November 20) I’m in a rental!

Now, I have several people I needa thank, cuz they sent me books to read (like I didn’t have 800 piled up to read already HAHAHA) and review while I was recovering! So, Angie at Books 4 Tomorrow, and all the mods of Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Fanatics on Goodreads (Kay I LOVE YOU!! and you are just too cute) & Terri who was my Secret Santa–let me tell you she is an awesome gift giver!! Also, Lavinia Thompson for sending me Spellbound by Fire (which is up next to read), Samantha Combs who sent me Ghostly, Deborah Noel who sent me Tangled Bloodlines, Dominique Eastwick who sent me Shifting Hearts and Blacksmith’s Daughter, Willow Cross who sent me Inheritance, Dawn Gray who sent me Raven, and Courtney Conant who sent me Blood Moon of Winter…. these are all my review books for the next 2 weeks :) hahahaha other than my R2R books of course :) And for the month of March I will be doing release parties for Eliabeth Hawthorne & Ermisenda Alvarez for Blind Sight (but the cool thing is it’s 2 different person’s perspective of the same book-I’m so intrigued by this) (Angie, almost all of these came from your recommendations, so thank you!!) I appologize if I left anyone out! ~bad Maghon!~

Now, to that awesome Slide show up at the top :) hehehe! ok, I couldn’t just chose a few lil books from this year, so I posted a picture of each in the slide show, and then broke it down for you! You can just skip the list and look at all the pretty pictures hahaha yeah I know, I’m obsessed with slide shows… so here ya go, here’s how I listed them (in alphebetical order of authors first names, not in a favorite order :))

Now now, I know there are a ton of books I haven’t read from 2011, that I have seen winning on all my fellow bloggers sites… I will eventually get to those too hahaha, but I just wanted to make sure all the one’s I love get their dues!!

Also, I have decided, before I do the totally awesome Blood Warrior by HD Gordon blog tour,

Blood Warrior (The Alexa Montgomery Saga #1)

I’m gunna do a crazy give away for the new year!!! I will pick a crap load of books and e-books to give away… It comes in handy to work at a used book store (yes I said used, so some of those books will not be fresh off the shelf) but I figure you will forgive me, since I’m gunna pocket the e-book & shipping costs :) some have only been touched by me, so they are technically fresh off the shelf!!! actually, I should say out of the box, cuz they don’t touch the shelf hahahahaha
I can’t tell you exactly which books they are yet, but I can tell you that they will most probably be from the list above (some will be the whole series, some just one or two of the books)…. So, you gotta wait till January 1, 2012 to see what I’ve decided… now, spread the word to watch for my posts (on twitter–@magluvsya03– or Facebook –Maghon Thomas– since I always spread the word there)… I promise to name it give away or freebies or something like that ;) so you know… I have 4 followers (HAHAHAHA 4 YAY!!!), so they will get the e-mails!

Alright, thank you for reading my craziness. … and see you in a few days…and here’s my picture of the day :)

I was totally surprised that my parents bought me a kindle fire :)
